Can you predict which clubs will be given the Editor's Choice for 2008 Golf Digest Hot List?

Select one club from each of the following categories:

1. Driver
2. Fairwaywood
3. Hybrid
4. Game Improvment Irons
5. Super Game Improvement Irons
6. Player's Irons
7. Wedge
8. Putter: Mallet

10. Balls: Premium
11. Balls: Non Premium

See how many you will get right when it comes out next January.

My pick.

1. Driver - G10
2. Fairwaywood - G10 (But Callaways always won this category in the past so the upcoming Callaway Fusion Fairway)
3. Hybrid - Wild guess... Adams?
4. Game Improvment Irons - (Not Decided but should be Callaway)
5. Super Game Improvement Irons - Cobra UFi (But could be Callaway)
6. Player's Irons - Hopefully Mizuno MP57
7. Wedge - So much popularity with Vokey Spin Milled (But performance wise I think Mizuno MP-T)
8. Putter: Mallet - Odyssey Marxman
9. Putter: Blade - Ping Karsten (But perfomance wise Gel Putter)
10. Balls: Premium - Titleist Pro V
11. Balls: Non Premium - Titleist NXT Tour

    • Here's what happened and why I ask the question. I have a brother-in-law same age as me (68) with no hobbies what so ever. He's a stock & bond broker with no outside interests at all. He doesn't collect stamps, he's not a wood worker, he doesn't play tennis, he doesn't do anything but work, work, work. He won't even sit down and read a book. (He claims he doesn't have the patience.) He has no interests other than the stock and bond markets and he's incapable of relaxing. He's also very, very uncoordinated, but nevertheless, a very nice guy. Golf would not be a good thing for him. He has come to me several times over the years and said, "I don't know how I'm ever going to retire because I won't know what do do with myself. Maybe I'll take up golf! You'll teach me!" And I said, "I will not teach you, I can't teach you because I'm not an instructor. You'll need to buy a set of real clubs, not the couple of old irons you have in your garage, and take lessons from a teaching pro." I did play golf with him once, maybe 10 or 15 years ago. He had a couple of mismatched irons, one ancient 3 wood with loose whipping and a putter all from, I'm pretty sure, from the Salvation Army store and he insisted on teeing up every shot, even ones from the fairway. If I say he shot somewhere between 140 and 160 (not counting the whiffs) I'm being charitable. We walked the 18 holes that day and it nearly killed him. When we were done he was totally drained and I actually thought he was going to have a heart attack. I also said to him, "You've managed to live 60 some years without golf, why start now? It will only frustrate you and drive you crazy." Then I jokingly, said to him, "It's too late for me...I'm hooked, but I can save you!" He mentioned it to me again recently so, in the interests of "growing the game" do I encourage him to buy clubs and take lessons or should I continue to try suggesting other things for him to do? (He does have a mammoth wine collection.). I really want to discourage him because knowing him like I do, golf will not make him happy. Also, selfishly, I don't want to play with hm again. That round 15 years ago took over 6 hours to play and there were many groups stacked up behind us cursing and yelling and we were being hounded by the rangers. It was awful.      
    • My first question is . Did you do all three exercises and how did you do ? This is meant as a fun test to see how ones' balance and core is. It is not meant to build anything. There are many exercises that progressively work up to addressing the entire body that help one hit the ball better, but that is not what this is all about. Thanks for your input. 
    • Thanks Lihu..I dont hate it, I just dont have fun playing ...so the interest isnt there any longer...I am still a golf fan..just not a player..
    • Hello everyone. I’m brand new (about a month) to golf, and I’ve been lurking here for a few weeks. I figured it was about time to join!    I look forward to getting to know y’all!
    • I have a distant cousin who tried it and even forced me to go to the driving range a few times long before I was into playing. I found it stupid and not worth my time, but did it just to keep him company. He never got the hang of it, quit then 6 years later my kids got into it and my archery range virtually shut down so I started playing golf with them. My cousin hates it just like you, and I started out thinking this is the dumbest activity ever made but now enjoy it. You never know what’s in your future, just take a break from it. We’ll be here, or, at least some of us.
